    A Harley Biker is riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter...
  • Legalized pot is making America’s lower class poorer and less responsible

    (Snip) The middle and upper classes have been the ones out there pushing for decriminalization and legalization measures, and they have also tried to demolish the cultural taboo against smoking pot. But they themselves have chosen not to partake very much. Which is not surprising. Middle-class men and women who have jobs and families know that this is not a habit they want to take up with any regularity because it will interfere with their ability to do their jobs and take care of their families. But the poor, who already have a hard time holding down jobs and taking...

    In a social media-driven world, everyone is a brand. When everyone becomes a brand, virtue signaling is destined to become an epidemic. When you’re a liberal, the best way to show how much more virtuous you are than other people is to become offended. The more trivial the issue you are offended by, the more caring, enlightened and, yes, virtuous you appear to other liberals. Moreover, if you think white privilege, racism and rape culture are running rampant, you’ll want to find ways to distinguish yourself from the masses, whom you view as troglodytes.   As the great Thomas Sowell...

    Today in Dimondale Michigan Donald Trump gave what was not only the best speech of his campaign but a speech that will one day be seen as a landmark in the emergence of a new Republican Party – a party finally returning to its roots as the party of Lincoln. If this sounds like hyperbole ask yourself what other Republican leader in recent memory has addressed America’s African American communities in this voice: The African-American community has given so much to this country. They’ve fought and died in every war since the Revolution. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our...

    I have spent my life as a Democrat which probably isn’t that surprising considering that I am African-American. One of the things that always attracted me to the party were the ideals of equality, fighting for the little guy and our openness to differing opinions, but lately I have seen my party take a turn that makes me uncomfortable. Somewhere along the way we stopped fighting for the little guy and became the party of the smug, educated elites who look down on those with less education and deem them unable or unworthy of being able to make personal decisions...

  • Pennsylvania attorney general resigns a day after conviction

    Pennsylvania's first elected female attorney general announced her resignation Tuesday, a day after being convicted of abusing the powers of the state's top law enforcement office to smear a rival and lying under oath to cover it up. Democrat Kathleen Kane's exit completes a spectacular fall for the former county prosecutor who soared to victory four years ago as an outsider promising to break up an "old-boys' network" in state government. She squandered her early popularity, feuded with rivals and aides and ultimately was undone by what prosecutors portrayed as a personal vendetta against her critics and perceived enemies.

Kentucky Sports Radio host Matt Jones and former state auditor Adam Edelen said their group isn’t a third party that will run a formal slate of candidates in 2018. Instead, it will organize and support people who want to run for elected office, especially local office, if they share four core values: civil rights for every Kentuckian; universal access to affordable health care; a living wage for workers; and the primacy of education. Kentuckians are badly served by...

    Coming off of the Woodrow Wilson years, the Democrat Party was the de-facto Progressive Party in the United States. Theodore Roosevelt's efforts had failed, and the GOP remained as having some constitutional elements in it. With the rise of Calvin Coolidge and the roaring 20's coupled with a reduction in government that makes most of us jealous, progressivism was looking like it was permanently eliminated. Technically, it was. In order to ensure its own survival, progressivism had to lie and say it was something else. That chosen title was "liberalism". Most of the time, when you and I think about...

They got to compel people to “join” Social Security, subsidize National Public Radio, pay for legions of needless bureaucrats in offices not authorized under the Constitution, bail out political cronies who cried “We’re too big to fail!” and so on. That kind of “liberalism” was bad enough, but the disease has of late developed new and far more vicious strains. Those involve attacks on Americans for not...

    AT LEAST one person has been killed and 12 more are injured after a Syrian asylum seeker blew himself outside a wine bar in Germany. The attack took place in Ansbach, near Nuremburg, after the 27-year-old was denied access to the nearby Ansbach Open music festival, according to Germany's interior minister Joachim Herrmann. Hermann said the suspect, who was known to police, had lived in Germany for two years but was denied asylum in the country a year ago. He said it is unclear if the suspect intended to kill others or just himself but said he had “tried to...

    All available evidence suggests that when Micah Johnson sniped police officers in downtown Dallas on Thursday, he intended it as a political act. During the ensuing standoff, he told police negotiators that he was angry about the recent apparently unwarranted killings of black men by police, and “stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown. Johnson could not have reasonably believed that he’d shoot enough cops to actually diminish the capacity of law enforcement agencies to unjustifiably kill black people. He did it to send a message, to arbitrarily terrorize cops...

    The rise of Yiannopoulos can help to explain the rise of Donald Trump. Both have attracted followers that feel silenced, ignored, and invalidated by the left. Both will continue to receive sympathy and exposure if their opponents continue to aggressively and instinctually dismiss their views. And perhaps both can be defeated—or at least weakened—through respectful and empathic discourse. More broadly, the story of Yiannopoulos is useful to understand today’s political climate. There is an ever-growing number of Americans—liberals and conservatives—who feel like their voices are not being heard. Americans are increasingly identifying with their party, race, gender, or sexuality—and are...

In his ruling, Judge Barry G. Williams rejected the prosecution’s claim that the officer, Caesar R.

    A jury has convicted veteran U.S. Congressman Chaka Fattah in a racketeering case that largely centered on various efforts to repay an illegal $1 million campaign loan. Fattah was found guilty of all 22 counts against him, including racketeering, fraud and money laundering. His lawyers had argued that schemes were engineered without Fattah's knowledge by two political consultants who pleaded guilty in the case. Fattah's jovial and calm demeanor didn't change much as the verdict was read....

    Another holiday brought another slaughter of innocents in heavily gun-controlled Chicago. Fifty-six people were shot during Father’s Day weekend, and 13 of those shooting victims died. This brings the number shot in Chicago to “about 1,800 people” year-t0-date, the Tribune reports.

    While the French were fighting for what turned out to be a false equality through government control, Americans were fighting to obtain and hold on to unrestricted opportunity and freedom from government control To today’s liberal leftists, equality means taking from those who have abundance and transferring it to those in lack. But it fails to factor in the economic consequences of this transfer of wealth. The abundance they are drawing from begins to shrink as economic development is stifled by government policies. Communism and socialism promise equality but bring equality of poverty except for a privileged government bureaucracy and...

    A stench of hatred was in the air, so palpable you could taste it. How anyone could feel such animosity toward people theyÂ’d never met, whoÂ’d done nothing but lead their lives in a way that harmed no one but did not conform to the world view of the man who wished to see them gone is something rational people cannot comprehend. More confusing still was how that man and his likeminded comrades, so full of contempt for their fellow man, had obtained positions of power and gotten their leader twice elected president of the United States. From President Obama...

    The First Rate website Sipsey Street Irregulars posted the following Facebook piece written by Billy Beck. The Coach’s Team brings his brief warning to our readers in its entirety. Billy Beck "You are at war, and your government cannot protect you. The enemy is far too committed and nimble for any of the government's force to turn quickly enough and face any given attack until it's upon you: right there in the same room with you. You must integrate the fact that if the enemy attacks, then *you* are at the front, and you must learn to act with every...

    Almost exactly a century ago at the great naval battle at Jutland, David Beatty said "There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today" after two of his battleships exploded under German gunnery and incompetent seamanship by his sailors. Well, there seems to be something wrong with our bloody newspapers today as well. The New York Times runs an editorial on "The NRA's Complicity in Terrorism," but the Orlando mass murderer Omar Mateen isn't a member of the NRA. He is a member of the Democratic Party, who voted for Obama twice, and worked as a subcontract security...

    Damning Dad: Father’s Day Pledge is appalling by Daniel Clark Happy Father's Day, you sadistic, sociopathic brute! That's essentially how the holiday is being observed here in Pittsburgh, a city that is plunging into full-blown, banana-brained liberalism at warp speed. Since 2014, political and business leaders have been signing onto the "Father’s Day Pledge to End Gender Violence," along with popular local sports figures like Pirate manager Clint Hurdle, and longtime backup Steeler quarterback Charlie Batch. If you don't understand what "gender violence" means, that's understandable, because liberals are still in the process of making it up. If they really...

    An awesome documentary on the Vendee uprising and the massacre of catholics in France in the French Revolution The Vendee is a taboo in France. It is nearly forgotten but thankfully isn't. In 1793, after the execution of Louis XVI, Catholic Farmers in the Vendee region of France revolted against the newly formed godless republic headed by Robbspierre. The response by the newly created republic was monstrous. Over Half a milllion people, men women children and elderly were put to death by the government for opposing it and for promoting Catholic faith. Very few acknowledged its existence, John Paul II...

    In March, the City of Seattle installed one crosswalk boasting Pan-African colors in the Central District. The city is now creating 10 more for pedestrians throughout the neighborhood.The first crosswalk was installed at 23rd Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Way. It is striped with black, green and red — the Pan-African colors. Throughout June, the Seattle Department of Transportation plans to install the new crosswalks, but will first remodel the already painted walkway from March. While the original design had colored lines similar to regular crosswalks, the new ones will have solid colors laterally crossing the street.The city...
